This summer we have learned to process a new product called Brandied Apples. The process involves processing sliced apples in a sugar solution with a small amount of Brandy added to the solution after cooking it. Then the solution is poured over the apples in the jar.
Patrick Fix, Kristy Peney, County Agent Jacob Williams and I traveled to UGA Food Science to receive some training regarding some new equipment we will be using at the Canning Plant this year.
